The guys on watch get bored. Wave a military ID and a paper at them, act like you own the place in a friendly way and you’d be surprised where and how far you can get. I once packed a 12 pack of beer to the end of a pier past the SP guard post. Then sat with a friend who couldn’t leave the pier and drank it. There were four Poseidon submarines parked there. One of them was ours. Just saying.

My wife does historic military displays and presentations, often on base. One time we had an event on base, and I forgot my driver’s license. I did have my Fire Department ID and they were expecting us, and we were waved through without basically any hassle. My wife was getting an award from the Western Regional Medical Command Team for her work with the Army Nurse Corps so we had invited a couple of friends. They were Marine Corps veterans and had their military ID and normally have no problem getting on an Army base, but since the Command Team was on base they had higher security than normal and they would not let them through the gate.

It seemed a little surprising. I got on base without my drivers license and then shook the hands of the General and the entire command team they had heightened security for and our friends who had their military IDs couldn’t get on base.

It is the Hasan effect (psychiatrist who killed at fort hood)

Nobody wants to question a Moslim and get called on the carpet for racism. or perhaps brownism.
